TWIA invites public to 2024 Rate Adequacy Analysis review

Texas Windstorm Insurance Association (TWIA) Actuarial & Underwriting Committee will meet on Monday, July 15 at 10 a.m. CT. The meeting agenda and meeting materials are available on TWIA’s website.

The Committee will review the 2024 Rate Adequacy Analysis prepared by the Association’s actuarial staff, receive public comment, and consider whether to recommend a change in rates to TWIA’s Board of Directors. The Rate Adequacy Analysis indicates that TWIA’s current rates are inadequate by 38 percent for residential coverage and 45 percent for commercial coverage.

On August 6, 2024, the TWIA Board will meet in Galveston to consider the rate adequacy analysis, the Committee’s recommendation, and stakeholder feedback when voting to decide on the Association’s annual required rate filing. A timeline of TWIA’s 2024 annual rate filing consideration process is available on TWIA’s website.

All meetings of the TWIA Board of Directors and its committees are open to the public. The public may attend and make public comment for this meeting in person at TWIA’s office in Austin or virtually via Zoom.
